Getting LEA to fund an Independent School
Hi. I've found myself in the throws of trying to find a new placement for my son quite urgently. The State Special Needs Schools aren't coping and I have found an independent school that I believe would be the most appropriate. Now I've been told by all professionals to get prepared for a fight for funding. Are there any parents out there who have been through the process and can give me any tips to have ready for my appeals? I've started a diary and listed 8 pages of reasons why his current school is not appropriate and his consultant is writing what she feels he requires.....1-2-1 and a specialised unit. Anyone been there? Done that? Got the placement?
